Browns TE Gary Barnidge has hernia surgery-- Thu Jun 2 10:21 am --
Expected to be ready for training camp
Amid an offseason where the Browns have added five rookie wide receivers, one of their best pass catching options will miss time due to a sports hernia surgery. Tight end Gary Barnidge will miss the rest of the team's offseason program but should return for the start of training camp, head coach Hue Jackson told reporters on Thursday.(NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:With one of the weakest and youngest receiving corps in the league, Barnidge may be the team's most reliable weapon in the passing game this season. Assuming he doesn't have any setbacks he should be fine for training camp and Week 1. Barnidge is mid-level TE1 in redraft leagues.
